    Given that politics and economics are connected, FSM has strategic value as international economics rest upon international political order – regional stability – (China contends, U.S. balances).

  • The “eastern Pacific”?

    Do east and west reverse in the Southern Hemisphere, too, as the seasons do?

  • The leader must psosess several characteristics. He must be cunning, not wise philosophically. He must understand people. The leader is not seeking ultimate truth, he is searching for what works. The leader must be stingy. It is not good to give gifts to people or the leader will be ruined financially. Money is one of the means to procure power. Power is about force, and money is needed to buy that force and sustain it. The leader must be cruel. Being hated and feared is better than being loved. People will not aid a loved leader unless it is convenient for them. However, they will aid a cruel leader in fear of being punished if they do not give him aid when he needs it. The ability to lie is key to his success. The leader should never keep a promise unless it is convenient. He should say whatever is expedient at the moment, than do what he pleases.
